I can only confirm what many others have already said. This is an excellent and extremely well managed restaurant - in fact the best we found on our 2 week road trip from Lecce via Matera, Perugia, Siena, and Elba, to Civitavecchia. After the complimentary plate of crudités, excellent pasta starters and salad we could barely even start on the... More

Having been to La Taverna many times for the past ten years (my brother and I did university in Perugia), I was pleasantly impressed by the fact that the standard of service, cuisine, and atmosphere continued to operate at a very high standard. Recently, I visited La Taverna with my girlfriend after eight years of leaving Perugia, and we had... More

We were lucky to find ourselves in Perugia during truffle season and found the best place to gorge on them at the Taverna. Thanks to the wonderful chef, Claudio, we were treated to both black and white truffles in our pasta dish and in our meat dish. It was the best meal we had during our January trip to Italy.... More

Had such a fabulous time at La Taverna! The food was exquisite, the service was beyond wonderful and the chef came out and talked with us at the table. His name is Claudio, and I can honestly say that this is the most friendly and tasty (especially if you love truffles) ristorante that we have been to since arriving in... More

We visited this restaurant in November of 2014. It had been raining all day and was extremely foggy that evening. My dad asked a local hotel where to eat dinner and they suggested La Taverna right away. We found our way down the 'very Italian' steps to the Restaurant. We got there fairly early - about 6:45 so it wasn't... More

A restaurant that doesnt need any description, it says everything by itself. Not only the food but the place makes you feel as if you are in one of the top restaurants in the world

My wife and I had our dinner here for our two nights in Perugia. Claudio, the owner and chef was great and his stories about the food and his life interesting. My wife had the best lamb she had ever eaten and we were both blown away by the salt cod and prunes. Great atmosphere and full of local people.... More

We arrived in Perugia without any reservations, and walked by the restaurant in the late afternoon, asking for a reservation by ducking my head under the half-open grate over the front door. We were assured by an unseen voice that our reservation was made, but upon arrival it wasn't in the book. No matter, we were welcomed by the chef/owner... More

Narrow streets of Perugia led as ti the place which do not reflect the meaning of the place to go for a lovely dinner. But that was the firs second mistake. The cuisine is super, the attitude to the guest is more that warm. The chef cheeks every dish, the waitresses are more than helpful and polite.
